These scenarios highlight the need for strategic thinking on economic development in a broad sense. Each of the three more problematic scenarios emphasize this need, each in a different fashion, highlighting problems around growing inequality and outside investment that perhaps will only benefit a few, or problems around economic activities that keep the country back. The Wotsalira scenario offers the most challenging future because there is no leverage point for action unlike in the other two "negative" scenarios. Where do you begin? Perhaps civil society (if organizations can be found that are not crippled by corruption) offers a way toward improvement, together with international support?
